Mamamade, break your addiction to paper towels.
Heard of tree saver towels? They’re a handmade, reusable alternative to paper towels and disposable cleaning towels. I’ve had a chance to make the switch from paper towels to Mamamade‘s tree saver towels and I love them.
I know what some of you are thinking, the snaps aren’t necessary and they’re too pricey.
Well honestly, isn’t creating reusables that are just as convenient to use as disposables the whole point? It’s the same with cloth diapers. We use modern cloth because it functions like a disposable, closes easily like a disposable and is made to be as easy to use as a disposable diaper.
Honestly, I couldn’t be more impressed with the tree saver towels. It’s not as easy to tell in the photos, but these are very thick, durable and absorbent. The innovative elastic with snaps that allows you to be able to roll these onto a paper towel roll is very innovative and I honestly had no clue that was standard with the towels. In fact, I hadn’t considered how I’d roll them and forgot that without a way to attach them to the roller they would just fall off.
The tree saver towels have so far been used in my house for cleaning up after dinner, cleaning windows and glass, cleaning the bathroom counters and toilet and as a hand towel for drying.
I can admit, at first my husband was rolling his eyes and I could tell he was thinking “what are you forcing us to do now?” But when I took away the paper towels and replaced them with these he then realized how well they work I’ve seen him using them and reminding the kids to use them as well.
So far one set has been more than plenty. I wash as needed with my regular laundry so clean ones are always getting added back on the roll.
